Focus Factor by Factor Nutrition Labs is similar to many other brain supplements we have reviewed, in that it comprises a broad range of vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts and amino acids in one supplement bottle. While we do not believe this to be an effective way to deliver a formula, the company praises their product based on this approach. The “more is better” approach doesn’t always work, especially when we talk about brain supplements and many of these ingredients will not even reach the brain and will be flushed from the body in the usual manner.
Is Focus Factor Right For You?
Focus Factor is a brain supplement designed to support brain function and help the brain “run” more efficient. The company behind this product is Factor Nutrition Labs, one of the leading brands of nutritional supplements. The manufacturer claims that the Focus Factor formula is their number one brain formula, a claim which, sadly, is not entirely validated by scientific evidence.
According to the manufacturer, this supplement is a combination of natural ingredients, minerals, vitamins, herbal extracts, and Omega-3 oils. The manufacturer claims that each ingredient was added to the formulation due to its unique set of properties and that the ingredients work together to enhance overall cognitive function in patients.
The Focus Factor supplements line is comprised of two products: one for adults (Focus Factor) and one for children, suggestively named Focus Factor for Kids. However, at the time of this review, the official website was not functional, which means our research was focused mostly on 3rd party sites.
This formula is very similar to many other brain supplements we have reviewed in the past. In fact, Focus Factor looks more like a multivitamin than a brain supplement. People should learn that, opposite to general belief, more does not always equal better and this is one of those situations.
The formula contains so many different ingredients (ranging from vitamins and minerals to amino acids and herbal extracts) that most of them will not even reach the brain as they are either unable to cross the blood-brain barrier or are absorbed into the body before reaching the brain.
